Most of us will suffer work-related stress – and the problem is most acute for public sector staff, particularly those in the NHS.

This was one of the conclusions of a 2018 report by New Economics Foundation, which produced some startling statistics. In the UK in 2016/17:

  • 526,000 workers suffered work-related stress, depression or anxiety
  • The cost to the economy was up to £43bn
  • Stress resulted in 165,800 hospital bed days at a cost of £71m
  • 74% of people reported feeling unable to cope and a third said they had felt suicidal.

This workshop from PCC will show you how to understand the things that cause you stress (“stressors”) and how to become more stress-resistant.

Most people are faced with increasing complexity and rising workload, and report a poor work/life balance as they struggle to reconcile work priorities with home
or family commitments.

You may not be able to avoid all the causes of stress, but you can become better at recognising them and at building up your reserves of resilience to mitigate the
effects of stress.

The workshop focuses on how to develop awareness of your stressors and practical methods for maintaining a deep “resilience well”. The second half of the session
provides an opportunity to put what you’ve learnt about your personal resilience into practice and apply it to your own work/life situation.

Delegates should expect to leave understanding:

  • What depletes and replenishes their resilience
  • How to recognise and deal with their personal stressors
  • How to increase their overall stress-resistance and come back from adversity
  • How the right team dynamics and awareness of others can alleviate stress for everyone.

The workshop is led by Colin Murray, an experienced leader, coach and facilitator who has delivered development programmes for numerous CCGs and medical practices. Colin’s workshops and training sessions for PCC get consistently excellent feedback and high satisfaction scores from participants.
